Bridging ELAR reading strategies with science-specific disciplinary reading
Day 1, Session 1 - July 25, 12:30-1:30pm
This session will provide teachers with resources and strategies to adapt the tools and methods already being taught in ELAR classrooms to science disciplinary texts to increase content understanding and provide relevant examples of science concepts that your students can identify with.
Painlessly incorporating reading into a science unit
Day 2, Session 1 - July 26, 12:30-1:30pm
This session will demonstrate how to seamlessly incorporate reading into your content units! We will use online resources to find non-fiction texts, such as magazine or news articles, then incorporate them into a unit of study to provide real life examples of science in action while providing students with the opportunity to practice and improve reading skills!
